Speaker : Don Knuth Keywords: Analysis of algorithms;inversion notation; Stirling numbers; history of mathematics; concrete mathematics. Abstract: The speaker presents numerous examples of situations where good notations enhance mathematical problem solving, as well as a few that have been less helpful.

Abstract: Over the moduli-space of G-torsors on a curve (G a semisimple simply connected split algebraic group) we construct line-bundles corresponding to arbitrary central charges. This had been previously done only in characteristic zero or for the classical groups (using determinants of cohomology and Pfaffians) and G2, but not the other exceptional groups. For E8 the remaining index is 30. The construction uses the reduction to generic Borels. Speaker: Gerd Faltings Date: Wednesday March...

Speaker : Pawel Hitczenko Keywords: Analysis of algorithms; Walsh-Hadamard transform; recursive algorithms; average case analysis; central limit theorem martingale. Abstract: We analyze the performance of a family of algorithms for computing the Walsh-Hadamard transform. One aspect of performance is modeled by a family of reoccurence relations. Deterministic bounds on the solutions are obtained, and under natural random model, we find, asymptotically the expected values, variances, and also...

Speaker : Greg Sorkin Keywords : Analysis of algorithms; average-case analysis; branching processes; Brownian motion; phase transition; scaling window; constraint satisfaction; satisfiability. Abstract : A maximum cut in a random graph below the giant component threshold can be found in linear space and linear expected time by a simple algorithm. The same algorithm solves the more general class Max 2-CSP of weighted binary 2-variable constraint satisfaction problems, which includes weighted Max...
